A VERY CLOSE CALL
Tlie Pittsburg Team Scores
Still Another Victory, but
HAS NOTHING TO SPAKE.
Philadelphia Looms Up Yery Dan
gerously in the Last Inning.
NEW YORK AND BOSTON BOTH WIN.
Each Hakes Any Quantity of Buns and
Thev Are Still a Tie.
EESULTS OF THE OTHEE CONTESTS
The Philadelphia club met with another
defeat at Recreation P3rk yesterday, al
though a dangerous spurt in the ninth al
most secured them the same. New York
and Boston players had their bats with
them and defeated their respective oppo
nents rather easily. Cleveland defeated
"Washington, and, as a consequence, still
has a good lead for fifth place.
Captain Hanlon's aggregation of ball
tossers scored their seventh consecutive vic
tory yesterday, but it was a remarkably close
shave, and at no time did the contest looK
more dubious than just before the last man
was out in the ninth inning. The fielding
of Fogarty was the feature of the game, that
gentleman pulling down several apparently
safe hits in middle garden. Staley and
Sanders twirled the sphere for their re
spective teams, and each pitched a reason
ably strong game. But one hit was made
that was good for more than a single base.
The number of foul flies was almost phe
nomenal, Carroll alone having seven un
assisted put outs of this nature. The hits
secured from ifr.Sanders were of an opportune
nature, and the goddess of fortune seemed to
smile upon the local players.
Tee wind was whistling through the almost
empty benches when Carroll cave Pitcher San
ders a commiserating smile, and struct his
hit attitude. The first three tosses were pro
nounced bad by Umpire Knight, but then ban
ders braced up and succeeded in having two
strikes called. Carroll caught the next ball
squarely, and It started for the center field cor
ner at a very lively gait. Fogarty, however, by
a remarkable run and catch, spoiled wbat
looked like a very safe hit. Rowe singled to
left, but Beckley gave Farrar an unassisted
put-out on an easv grounder, and White re
tired from Sch river to first.
PITTSBUEG'S OXLT EEBOE.
Delehanty sent a liner right at Staley, who
stopped it, but failed to pick it up in time to
catch the runner. Beckley took care of Myer's
high hit, and Thompson knocked a foul fly,
which Carroll secured. Mulvey knocked a ball
which was too hot to handle, but Schriver sent
another foul tnJCarroll, ending the innlnr.
In the second inning Fields got to first on
Mulvey's error, but was forced out at second.
Hanlon getting to first on the play. Sunday
sacrificed, but Hanlon was left at second on
Dunlap's fly to Fogarty A foul fly. a strike
out and an asist from btaley to Beckley sent
the Philadelphia team to the field In very short
Carroll, for Pittsburg, and Myers, for Phila
delphia, each secured a base en balls in the
third, but the other three men at the bat in
both cases went out without much of a
TTHEBE "WE SCORED.
White was the first man at the bat in the
fourth inning, and assumed such a ferocious
aspect that Sanders gave him four bad balls.
Schriver charitably allowed a ball to pass by
him. and the Deacon went to second. Jocko
Fields made a neat hit to middle, and White
crossed the borne plate. Hanlon sent an easy
fly to Malvey, and Sunday advanced Fields a
base by a sacrifice. Dunlap knocked a hot ball
to second, and Myers threw wild, allowing
Fields to score and DunUp to go to second.
The latter scored on btaley's neat single, mak
ing three runs. Carroll sent another fly to
JIulvey helped Carroll's put out record by a
foul, and Schriver struck three times without
hitting an thing. Sanders secured a single,
and Fogarty quit from White to Beckley.
In the fifth inning the home club started off
in a very vigorous manner, Rowe sineling to
middle and Beckley -duplicating the act a mo
ment later. The fates were adverse, however,
Beckley being forced at second on White's life,
Howe taking third on the play. Fields popped
up a foul to Mulvey, and Hanlon repeated the
performance. leaving two men on bases.
ONE FOB PHILADELPHIA.
Hallman got a safe hit after Farrar bad been
retired, and Delehanty lined out the ball to a
vacant place back of Rowe. A passed ball now
played a short but successful engagement, and
each runner moved up a base. Myers made a
sacrifice fly to Fields and Hallman scored,
sliding about half of the distance. Thompson
got a base on balls and Delehanty stole third,
but Mnlrey sent a fly into Hanlon's bands.
Sunday came to the bat and distinguished
himself by the only double hit made in the
game, and tias advanced to third on Dunlap's
sacrifice. The sprinter was most anxious to
wore, but the flics of Staley and Carroll to
Hallman and Fogarty sent the side to the
grass with him still on the bag. Schriver and
Sanders both flew to Rowe, while Fogarty
singled and stole second in the most approved
stjle. Farrar sent out a very dangerous fly.
but Hanlon was under it at the proper
Sanders presented Rowe. the initial batter
in the seventh inning, with a base on balls, but
Beckley flew to Dclehantv and White's life
forced Rowe out at second. Fields also
secured four bad Dalls. while Hanlon sent a
short fly to Hallman. The first three batters
on the Philadelphia -siae'were retired bv an
assist at first, a strike-out and a foul to
SUNDAT HITS AND SLIDES.
In the eighth Billy Sunday led off with a neat
single, made a steal of the second bag, and
scored on Dunlap's sacrifice and a bad throw
ofFarrar's, making an elegant slide for the
home plate. Carroll secured abase on balls,
but Sunday's run was the last one secured by
the locals. In the other half big Sam Thomp
son secured his first bit, and ambled to third
on a very wild pitch, scoring on Mulvey's
sacrifice. Schriver allowed Carroll to add
another foul fly to his little list, and Sanders
allowed the ball to whistle past three times
without meeting any obstruction.
When Pittsburg came to bat for the last time
Beckley sent a foul fly to Mulvey. and White
quit on the assist of Myers to Farrar. Fields
lattened up his record by a single, but Hanlon
went out from Mulvey to first.
Right here came tbe time when the game
trembled in the balance, and for a brief period
it iooked as thongh Philadelphia would snatch
victory from defeat. Fogarty stepped, up to
the plate and caught tbe ball for a safe hit,
following it up by stealing second. Staley got
just a little nervous, and Farrar secured a base
on lour bad balls.
A CEITICAL MOMENT.
Hallman missed three times, but the runners
each secured an additional base, and Fogarty
scored on a passed ball, leaving the Philadel
phia team only one run in the rear. Delehanty
made himself eternally solid with the local
crOwd by striking out bnt Myers got a base
on balls and walked to Fecond at his leisure.
With a man on second and third base a shiver
wandered over the Dleachers as Thompson
went to the bat with a confident air.
A safe hit and the game would go to Phila
delphia, and the slightest fnmble would insnre
at least a tie. Mr. Thompson struck at one
ball and missed it, and then bad a ball called.
Tbe next one met bis bat with a resounding
thump, but the crowd heaved one uniform sigh
of relief as it dropped peacefully Into Jocko
Fields' willing hands, and the agony . as over.

PARSONS TO BYRNE.
The Louisville Club's President Says n Few
rsrrciAi, tileobam to the dispatch.:
Louisville, September 27. The howl sent
forth by President Byrne, of the Brooklyn ball
club, over tbe action of the American Associa
tion concerning the disputed games between
Brooklyn and St. Louis, has caused much com
ment. President Parsons, of the Louisvillcs,
who was singled ont by tbe irate head of the
Brooklyn club, was seen this morning and said:
"I have no defense or statement to make
concerning the matter, and do not deem either
necessary. Mr. Byrne is mistaken, however,
when he charges that tbe decision was cut and
dried, or that any action was taken, either
formal or Informal, before the evidence was
beard. For my part, I voted as I thought right,
after hearing all the facts, and am satisfied
the others did the same. The decision was a
just one, and no other verdict could have been
arrived at with fairneso. Tbe testimony went
to show that the New York League game was
called on account of darkness just 4b minutes
before the St. Louis club left, the ground, and
it was certainly not too dark to play. Had thern
been any umpire but Goldsmith in charge the
dispute would never have arisen and the St.
Louis team would have won the game."

SOME LIYELT PACING.
An Interesting Opening of the Lo
cal Bace Meeting.
DONALD fi WINS A GOOD RACE.
Jack Fogarty Offers to fight La Blanche
WIND UP OF THE L00IBY1LLE MEETING,
Exciting Shooting for the Korthside Gun Club
Medal General Sporting.
The local race meeting commenced yester
day at Exposition Park. There was a lively
struggle for the 2:24 pace. Jack Fogarty
offers to fight La Blanche at the California
Club. Louisville race meeting was brought
to a conclusion. Mr. E. E. Shaner won the
Northside Gun Club gold medal.
There was nothing to complain about at
yesterday's opening of the local race meet
ing. Of course it wasn't expected that any
thing like grand circuit racing would take
place. The meeting is of modest pretensions
and those who went to see honest and inter
esting contests were not disappointed by
any.means. It needed considerable courage
on the part of the track anthorities to hold a
meeting at all. The difficulties to cope
with in any such enterprise have been great
in this city for more than 12 months, and
the prospects of success have, during that
time, always looked gloomy, indeed. How
ever, yesterday's venture was a complete
success. The crowd was a profitable one
and everything went off so smoothly and satis
factorily that had the season not been so far
advanced a meeting on a larger scale would
.undoubtedly have been held.
There were three events on yesterday's card,
but owing to several horses not having arrived
In time tho tbree-minute trot was postponed
until to-day. Tbe other two events were the
224 and the 2:40 paces. Tbe former produced
some exciting beats. Although tbe winner,
Donald R, captured first money in three
straight heats, he had to contest every Inch of
the race: In fact, the race was in doubt until
the last heat was paced. He had
VERY STRONG OPPOSITION
in Harry Houtas and Knap McCarthy. Hontas,
however, went slightly lame, or else the result
might have been different. Donald B was
driven by Joseph Tipton. The gelding is a
dark bay, and is by a Toag horse, and his dam
is a thoroughbred. He made a mark of 22
recently at Butler. Yesterday be didnot go
extremely steady in the second heat, but at
times he showed good speed.
Sankey, a pretty gray gelding, won the 2 40
pace quite easily in three straight heats. He
is a steady going customer and has considera
bly more speed than he showed yesterday. He
is by Sandy Lake, by Fennell's Golddast, dam
by Stumer. Sankey was bought at Youngs
town recently by Moore Floyd, who gave him
a record of 2.30 in a sixth heat at Wheeling.
The judges of the meeting were: Perry
Charles, Clerk, George Fisher, Starter, Michael
Lynch and Gram Drum. Thev fulfilled their
duties well. C. H. Orion, the only "Double X,"
was on band with bis programmes and drivers'
colors and was a feature of the day's sport.
Tbe track was in good condition, and when the
sport was over everybody left the park well sat
isfied. Four horses faced the wire for the 2:24 pace,
viz: Knap McCarthy. Harry Hontas. Donald
B and Judge Lynch. The first named was the
general favorite, with Hontas next tn favor.
McCarthy drew the pole, with Donald R second,
Judge Lynch third and Hontas on the outside.
After scoring eight times they were dispatched
to a good send oS. Lynch and Donald R got
well away, and led the other two around tbe
turn into the backstretcb, where McCarthy
took command and held it until tbe three-
Suarter pole was reached. Here Hontas and
onald collared him and passed him on the
upper turn. Hontas led into the homestretch,
with Donald a length behind.
SOME FOUL DRIVING.
When the latter commenced to make his
effort Hontas pulled in front of him, and
passed first under tbe wire. Tbe judges, how
ever, put Hontas back for foul driving, and
awarded the heat to Donald R. Time, 232.
Donald R was the favorite for the second
heat, and ho and Hontas went away on even
terms when the word was given. Donald led
into the turn, with Houtas on his wheel. The
pace was too lively for Hontas, however, and
he "went un" on tbe backstretcb. leaviu
Donald with a good lead. On nearing the end
of the half Donald u ent up, and McCarthy
went to the front Donald, however, soon
steadied himself, and assumed commad soon
after passing the half. McCarthy again broke
on the backstretcb, and Donald went up again
on tbe upner turn. He was soon down again,
however and, having most speed, won easily.
In the third heat Donald B and Knap Mc
Carthy bad another tough struggle around the
turn. When fairly into the stretch, however,
McCarthy was carried off his feet. Donald led
comfortably to the three-quarter pole, when
Hontas challenged him. After a good race
home Donald won handily in 2.36.

Tbe Fall Meeting Close With a Snrprl
Ide Defeat of Lone Dance.
LouisvrLL, September 27. The fall meet
ing of tbe Louisville Jbckey Club closed to-day.
The feature of the day was the defeat of Long
Dance, a top-heavy favorite, by Outbound in
the stallion stakes, in which only three horses
started. Outbound won in a common gallop.

"A new theory has been started with regard to the use of soap on
the face. Women who for years have been careful of 'their complexions
would never, under any circumstances, wash the face in soap, as it was
said to roughen and coarsen the skin. Now, that Ivory Soap has been
invented; this idea is exploded, and a well-known physician in the, met
ropolitan profession recommends his women patients to use it freely
every day, lathering the skin well. He states that none but the most
beneficial results will be effected by this method o'f improving the skin.
He holds with considerable plausibility that the pares of the face
become as much clogged by grease and dirt as the hands or any other
portion of the body. And if soap is considered a necessary purifier in
the bath, its needs must be felt equally on the face. By an abundant
and regular lathering the facial pores, he claims, are kept open, clean,
iree from the clogging matter that produces unsightly blackheads, acne,
pimples, and a pure, healthy fresh and brighter complexion is the re
sultant. Not nincing matters, he says that the trouble with most women
who have sallow, pasty skins is, that from year's end to year's end they
never have a really clean face."
' A WORD OF
There are many white soaps, each
the Wi" t ey ARE NOT, but like
remarkable qi alities of the genuine.
